Around the System - Day 9

Corban Joseph, Neil Medchill, Trent Lockwood, Mitch Abeita Melky Mesa each doubled in the win. Mesa and Myron Leslie had a pair of RBIs apiece.
Low-A: Augusta 5, Charleston 2
Jose Ramirez fanned nine Greenjackets in 5 1/3 innings, but Michael Solbach couldn't hold the lead. Kyle Higashioka and Luke Murton each homered for the RiverDogs. Zoilo Almonte stole a base in the loss.
